The photographs were taken by a rehabilitation officer of the arm Chief Surgeon's Office when he arrived at the camp three days after Weimar was taken by the U.S. Third Army. On that day military government officials rounded up some 1200 German citizens of Weimar, led them through the camp and forced them to view the panorama of sadism for which they were told "you are responsible".
